Falcon LLM is the flagship LLM of the Technology Innovation Institute in Abu Dhabi.
Falcon LLM is a powerful LLM developed by the Technology Innovation Institute (https://www.tii.ae). Unlike other popular LLMs, Falcon was not built off of LLaMA, but instead using a custom data pipeline and distributed training system. The dataset is the RefinedWeb dataset (available on Hugging Face), and the initial models are available in 7B and 40B forms. Instruct and chat-finetuned models are available as well. Perhaps most excitingly, Falcon outperforms LLaMA, the previous de facto pretrained LLM.

Llama 2 is Meta AI's open source LLM available both research and commercial use case.
The successor to LLaMA (henceforce "Llama 1"), Llama 2 was trained on 40% more data, has double the context length, and was tuned on a large dataset of human preferences (over 1 million such annotations) to ensure helpfulness and safety. It outperforms other open source models on both natural language understanding datasets as well as in head-to-head face-offs.
